Big on Guru Showdown

As we mentioned recently, our pal Lizanne Herd competes on an online game show called "Guru Showdown," where she is the irritatingly-knowledgable Animal Guru. Rish was a contestant in the past, and now, it's Big's turn.

Can Big Anklevich beat the gurus? More importantly, can he beat Rish's score?

Check it out here!

Find out if Big knows the B-52's annoying hit, Rock Lobster. And if you'd like to be a contestant, head on over to www.gurushowdown.com.

Big and Rish on "The Drabblecast"

We Dunesteef boys were lucky enough to provide voices on the Drabblecast's long-awaited 200th episode. We play a pair of chatty scientists in Isaac Asimov's 1956 story "The Last Question" (which was apparently his favorite of his own short stories), and the extra-long episode can be found here.

It's always nice to do a part on the Drabblecast, and I hope there's somebody out there who thinks the same of us.

The Greatest Generation?

Here I am at work, toiling away, when suddenly I hear coughing and retching noises over my right shoulder.

Announcer Man is puking into the garbage can. Concerned co-workers rushed to his side to help him, and managers quickly excused him to go home to rest and recuperate.

I don't think, in my many years working at this place, that I have ever seen Announcer Man go home from work without completing his shift. He usually puts in a half an hour more than everyone else in the building. There's something unsettling about seeing something like this take place. It's akin to heading out to the beach, to find a massive humpback whale stranded and dying on the beach; or driving down the freeway to find a big rig tipped onto its side, blown over by the wind. These are usually unbeatable monsters, that were never meant to be seen in a vulnerable position like this.

Of course, being the stalwart that he is is probably why he was here puking in the trash can instead of vomiting into his toilet at home like anyone else would be.

Luckily, the smell never made its way to where I sit.

-Big Anklevich

...Oh, to top it all off, after five minutes in the bathroom, Announcer Man comes back to grab his things from his desk. He professes to feel much better. "I could probably stay and make it now," he says. I can't help but laugh. His level of dedication is beyond understanding for people of my generation or younger. His attitude is from a completely different, and bygone era.

That Gets My Goat 26: My Unfunny Valentine Cont'd

I don't know why we split this, since there's so very little of it left this week. I guess I just wanted the embarrassment of Rish talking romance to stretch a little longer.

Hug your loved ones tight, folks. Life could be worse.
